He also did a hilarious take on KentBrockmanNews as Richard Burns on ''Radio/GTARadio'', plays [[StrawNihilist Fawkes]] on ''WebVideo/TheGuild'' and was a frequent guest on the [[WebVideo/AcquisitionsIncorporated Dungeons & Dragons podcast]] alongside his fellow geek luminaries from ''WebComic/PennyArcade'' and ''Webcomic/PvP''. He also plays Darkstar (imagine if Wesley was more obnoxious and villainous) in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'', and ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]''. He also had a recurring role as Dr. Isaac Parrish, a {{Jerkass}} [[TheAce Ace]], [[spoiler:unsuccessful]] astronaut candidate, and Fargo's [[TheRival long time rival]], on ''Series/{{Eureka}}.'' He is also the host of ''WebVideo/{{Tabletop}}'' and its RPG spin-off ''WebVideo/TitansgraveTheAshesOfValkana'', and plays himself as a recurring character in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. In addition, Wil, like his ''The Guild'' co-star Creator/FeliciaDay, has a voice role in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', as the voice of the Robobrain enemy. In ''VideoGame/CodeNameSteam'', he voice-acts UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln. He used to host ''The Wil Wheaton Project'', a show which could be described as ''TheSoup'' for sci-fi/fantasy and geek culture in general, but it was cancelled after a single season. In 2014, he was cast as recurring character Earl Harlan in ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale''.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: In ''Tabletop'' episodes featuring games with a traitor mechanic, Wil almost always ends up being evil and winning, in contrast to his prolific losing streak in free-for-all games.

* GatewaySeries: [[DiscussedTrope Has stated]] on his blog that ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' is what led him to watch anime including ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'', Creator/HayaoMiyazaki's films, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and one]] accidental {{hentai}} film [[AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles with "tentacle dicks"]].
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Quite a few of his characters are massive, insufferable jerks. He's, of course, polite, friendly and nice.
** In fact, he wrote an ESSAY on this:
--->[[http://wilwheaton.typepad.com/wwdnbackup/2010/03/hi-im-wil-wheaton-im-not-a-dick-but-i-play-one-on-tv.html "Hi, I'm Wil Wheaton. I'm not a dick, but I play one on TV..."]]



* OneOfUs: As stated above, he's pretty much the Poster Boy.
* PlayingAgainstType: He played a rapist[=/=]{{serial killer}} on ''Series/CriminalMinds'' and a cowardly hipster-lumberjack in ''VideoGame/BrokenAge''.
* PromotedFanboy: He was a big ''Star Trek'' fan. [[CreatorBacklash Not as much as nowadays, of course, but...]]

Added DiffLines:

* BornUnlucky: Wil's dice rolls are ''legendarily'' terrible, to memetic degrees. It's at a point where Wil has legitimate reason to fear his bad luck rubbing off on those in his immediate vicinity; to quote the man during one of his guest appearances on WebVideo/CriticalRole:
-->'''Wil:''' I would like to apologize in advance to [[Creator/LiamOBrien Liam]] for having to share a table with me. I am ''sorry'' for what's going to happen to your dice on account of how close we are to each other tonight.

Born in Burbank on July 29, 1972, he became a full-time actor at the age of 8, scoring small roles and a large voice-acting credit for the classic ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH''. Then in 1986, he was cast as the lead in the Rob Reiner movie based on Creator/StephenKing's novella ''The Body'', called ''Film/StandByMe''. This got him plenty of public exposure, enough for him to land the job that he's most known for:
